Have you mamas ever thought about taking some ‘me time’ in a sensory deprivation tank? We know, it seems a little scary. How could a dark, soundproof tank filled with shallow water ever seem relaxing? we hear you ask. But it is! and our moving mom did it, and even more she really liked it! Jessica decided to take her first float when she was 8 months pregnant. According to Jessica, the experience was surreal. She felt like a baby in a womb, with her daughter in her womb! (yes we know, mind-blown!) Jessica found floatation not only enabled her to relax, but also eased some of her pregnancy aches and pains.
